PPOTY 2013

And the winner is….

You can almost feel the anticipation as the atmosphere and excitement grows.

Just a reminder of the rules. All nominees have to have been a “plant of the month” this year. With the winner picked, under strict rules and regulations, using the criteria of performance in the garden, colour, texture, form and if I like them!

So without further ado the Plant Personality Of The Year 2013 is….

Camellia ‘Yoimachi’

January’s “plant of the month” worked so well this year. Its flowering season went from late December well into February and even a few flowers into March. The scented small white with pink edged flowers brighten up the darkest winters day and what a great way to start the New Year than with a flurry of flowers.

Its the second year a camellia has won the award, anything to do with the fact we are an ICS Camellia Garden of Excellence?
